to the board as a committee report. it's an ordinance to amend the environment code to restrict the sale or distribution on city property of drinking water and plastic bottles of 21 ounces or less, set city policy to increase the availability of drinking water in public areas and buy the use of city funds to purchase bottled water and making requisite findings. >> president chiu. >> thank you, mr. chair. colleagues, i very much want to thank you for your consideration of this item as well as members of the community that have worked with my office for the better parts of nine months to move this forward. we all know with climate change and the importance of combating climate change that san francisco, we've been leading the way in fighting for our environment and this is why i ask you to support this legislation, to reduce and discourage the use of single use single serving plastic water bottles in san francisco. the ordinance we have in front of us really does three things. it helps to restrict the sale or distribution of bottled water on city property. it sets city policy to increase t

community has already been here for me and i'm a product of my environment and i think it's my purpose to give back and actually do good as i can and pay off what's been given to me. >> so that's talking about partnerships with schools and as we doing the videos in the future so the skies the limit of what we can do with this program moving forward. lastly i have one minor amendment to the legislation which is on page three, lines 21 and 22 and basically it's saying that we would sell -- we would actually distribute bikes valued at no more than $500 resale value so we limit the actual -- the more expensive bikes will not be sold but $500 resale value means they're high quality bikes that will get out on the streets so the bike quality will range from some fixer uppers and bikes used for training or even competition so it will be a huge benefit to our communities and i want to thank jeremy pollack for working on the legislation and the community groups working on this and the bike coalitions and others as well so i have an amendment of the whole to add and is there comments or question

initially considered -- conservative influence the liberal environment. >> another good question. we found most of these students came in thinking of themselves as generically republican or conservative although there were a few that had moved toward greater conservatism but we also found that in college students further refined how they referred to themselves as conservatives so people who initially identified as republican or conservative then became fiscal conservatives or catholic conservatives. one of our interviewees, thinking of one person in particular referred to herself as the crunchy conservative. she is very pro-life but she is pro environment, pro social justice, some other ways. so things get messier once they get to college. >> please join me in thanking amy binder for this presentation.

environment in place. we had cyber hackers come in now up to two years to stool these coins. not only do they steal customer le 100,000 they sto coins from the owner specifically. >> what do you think is the likelihood that these people will ever get their money back? there is no regulation? there are no laws? why should they? dory.t is the fed assumes there's no consumer protection whatsoever and without the consumer protection, these investors could lose everything. most probably they have lost everything. bitcoin itself is untraceable. once these transactions are done, they are irreversible. it is anonymous. it is hard to track down the criminals. it is hard to get the money back. , i'm noto seems to me a lawyer by any means, establishing standing, the most basic legal principle that any suit has to go through, is virtually impossible because of the way bitcoin is designed it so there is no location and place. that is correct. there's no legal structure over the top of it as well as any sort of regulation over it. the chance of getting money back is quite low. what is very interesting
everywhere in this particular environment. because you have segments of high tech manufacturing. you have segments of innovative financial services. all of those types of businesses in this day and age need skilled productive talent. >> we don't know yet what's going to happen in the state of georgia, whether or not they will follow the lead of arizona and reject the pending legislation. but already we are seeing businesses like delta airlines and others try to distance themselves from what might happen in the state. how important is it for a company like delta to do that? >> well, delta's got a couple of different things at play here. there's lots of choice in airlines, right? and so they're in a very competitive business. they don't want to send the signal that they're aligned with the state, that is particularly unwelcoming or seems to be unwelcoming to certain individuals. and so that would be in the minds i'm sure of the management of delta. >> finally you've been crunching the numbers, doing the retch for a long time -- the research for a long time. more broadly speaking what might
's a safer environment for everyone so i am in support of the project. thank you >> thank you. >> next speaker >> good morning, commissioners i'm ken from the eastern neighborhood i live one block away from the park and i opposed the height of this project. there's that nothing posted will this meeting and nothing posted will this park right away right now how do you expect to have public involvement without notification. in 11984, the shadow was approved and added to the cities constitution when recycles shadow. this was gained by city of san francisco no building permit authorizing the construction of any structure that casts any shade or shadow under the urination or acquisition of the pointing may be allowed under the jurisdiction by the recreation and parks department. only after the hour after sunrise or sunset. appendix 12 of the constitution our cities charter adapted in 19868 an ordinance that adapts be it or in added. the master plan shall be sunbathed and capable statement of policies for so far o san francisco the following policies shall be included in the preamble and wh
on the agenda include tackling corruption, the gap between rich and poor, and concerns about the environment. and through all of this week, china's economy, through all of this, rather, china's economy continues to grow. president xi jinping and his administration are expected to introduce more reforms with the goal of achieving long-term stability. all this week we're bringing you insight and analysis with our special series, "china: road to reform." nhk world's raja pradhan is leading our coverage. he joins us live from beijing. raja? >> hi, gene. this once a year meeting is so important here in china that people in this country categorize it as its own season, the political season. npc spokesperson spoke to reporters ahead of the opening session. she talked about president xi jinping's determination to tackle bureaucratic corruption. fu says there will be zero tolerance for corrupt officials and anyone found guilty must be harshly punished. fu dismissed worries that other nations have exposed about china's ongoing military buildup. she said china believes it can maintain peace by strength
borders supplied a map that shows the increasingly hostile environment for journalist. the areas you see the darker colors, those are the most dangerous areas. and every day we are seeing violence against reporters in russia, egypt, venezuela, mexico. pretty much around the world. is enough being done to help them and what can be done? >> no, i don't think enough is being done. if you take the case of egypt, the arrest of journalists and bloggers is nothing new. the same is true of journalists in saudi arabia, we have seen some in china being arrested left right and center. what can be done, leader in the free world can speak on behalf of these judgists, raise their names in meetings condition aid to improvements in human rights and i think collectively, if we stand up for these political prisoners and journalists we cannot only see their release but the gradual reform of liberal societies. just relently i had my own experience a heated confrontation with iran's foreign minister over the imprisonment of one who has spent four years in prison for criticizing the regime and a outcry. he wa
of the environment they are in charge of working with city departments about the requirements of this ordinance to make sure that this is doable. >> good afternoon, supervisors cohen, chiu, [speaker not understood]. .public utilities commission. this legislation [speaker not understood] distribution of bottled water on city property is in [speaker not understood] and encouraging greater consumption of bottled water. -- of tap water, sorry. the drinking water provided by the sfpuc is among the purest, the cheapest to deliver and the best tasting water in the world. this legislation build upon the tap ordinance sponsored previously by supervisor chiu, mar, and [speaker not understood] joint tap program, golden tap initiative and drink tap in school. so, these programs, sfpuc in cooperation with other city departments and agencies has begun installing bottle filling stations and public spaces in schools throughout the city. san francisco is among the first cities in the united states to feature outdoor reusable bottle refilling stations. our stations can be found in golden gate park, crocker amazo
and the environment. through our eight year old think outside the bottle campaign we've collaborated with over 140 cities, universities and many national parks to promote tap over bottled water. and san francisco will continue to play a lead role in this movement bypassing president chiu's ordinance. 2007, as supervisor mentioned, san francisco set a precedent for citieses across the u.s. by cutting spending on bottled water. we saved tax payers nearly $500,000 a year and underscored the importance of our public water system. supervisor chiu's ordinance build on that legacy by codifying this commitment into law and increasing access to public water on city property. it is an important step toward ensuring our community has access to choose clean and safe public water. and by reinvesting in and promoting public water over bottled water, san francisco will set an important example for other cities and people across the country. the bottled water industry has had misleading marketing [speaker not understood]. public water is much more regulated than bottled water and is the best way to ensure access
are a port. we are at the water's edge. we are in proximity to the water and the windy environment. we have a challenge trying to control waste and debris that gets into the bay. we've all heard about the pacific plastic jar, large texas size swirls of plastic in the ocean. we even had a tenant who built a boat out of plastic bottles to sail it through that plastic to bring it to attention. it is something we've been aware of sometime. we looked at this in part through our obligationed under the state municipal stormwater program which requires us to keep debris out of the waters of the state ~. we review every lease, license, or event for environmental conditions. and, so, we have been acute eye for the potential impacts of what occurs on port property. we also, like all departments, have a zero waste program, zero waste coordinator and climate liaison. so, we had a nexus of various environmental concerns that as i say are particularly acute because of a proximity to the water. so, with that in mind, we were concerned to look at ways to reduce the possibility of plastics getting into the b
of standards and we also see that there is no control environment in place. we had cyber hackers come in for up to two years to steal these coins buried not only did they still customer coins, but they still 100,000 coins specifically from the owner of gox. >> what is the likelihood that these people will ever get their money back? there is no regulation and there are no safeguards so why should they? >> right, that is the sad story. there is no consumer protection whatsoever. without that protection, these investors could lose everything. most probably they have lost everything. bitcoin itself is not traceable. once these transactions are done, they are irreversible. it's anonymous so clearly is hard to track down the culprits and it is hard to get the money back. seems that the most basic legal principle is virtually impossible because of the weight bitcoin is operating. there is no location in place for such currency. >> that's correct. there is no legal structure over the top of it as well as any sort of regulation over it. the chance of getting money act is quite low. what's interesting ab
: in the new environment, our party faces many severe challenges. >> since then, the president's promised big reform, meant to shift the economy from fast paced to sustainable growth. those reforms are sure to be on the agenda at the national people's congress where investors hope the new administration will show they plan to walk the talk of reforms. investment house barclay's expects the government's anti-corruption drive to pick up speed after president xi jinping speeded up a campaign aimed at rooting out -- the brokerage, like many other firms hopes to see changes that would make the economy more account oriented. measures to help liberalize the financial sector and allow the currency to trade more freely. >> china policymakers are interested in bringing in more exchange rate flexibility. they need to have that before they open up their capital economy. >> reforms have raised awareness that this environmental problem can quickly become a social one. the pollution is a rut of years of double digit growth, no longer expected with the new leadership. most investors believe the government wi
positions in the government going around and questioning climate change. this is what the environment secretary says -- people get very emotional about it. people should just accept the climate has been changing for centuries. the energy minister went on about climate change. you are not going to draw me on that. i haven't had time to get into the climate change debate. [laughter] he is the energy minister, mr. speaker. will the prime minister clarify, is he happy that there are climate change deniers in his government? >> this is obviously the new approach to prime minister's questions. you come in and praise the prime minister for his commitment to climate change. i like the new style. i think this is much more refreshing. this government has a solid track record of cutting carbon and investing in nuclear. the biggest renewable energy program we have seen in this country, for the first time in a long time we are on track to the renewable target. perhaps he would like to get up again and congratulate me on the record on the energy environment. >> the whole country will have heard the
groundbreaking research to fight disease, protect the environment and develop new technology. it enhances the administration's management efforts to deliver a government that is more efficient and supportive of economic growth. and it will expand opportunity for all-americans. it doubles the maximum value of the earned income tax credit to encourage people to enter the workforce. and makes high quality preschool available to every four year old. and drive workforce training. it will focus on the primary drivers of long term debt and deficits. it builds on the forms of the affordable care act and continues to slow health care cost growth while improving the quality. it will curb tax breaks that benefit the wealthiest. it calls for pro-growth immigration reform. the deficit has been cut in half under the president's leadership. by paying for the new investments and tackling the true challenges, the budget continues with progress reducing deficits as a share of gdp to 1.6% by 2024. with regard to the issues of stabilizing our debt to gdp ratio that is in 2015 and we start a declining path. t
environment offers different challenges. but there are some fundamentals that come into play. catherine parrish: i thinking limiting your exposure to germs and a balanced diet are the most important things i teach them about keeping their baby healthy... and then coming for shots. the immunizations we provide certainly make a huge difference. diseases that killed hundreds of thousands of people don't even exist in this country anymore. although some concern has been expressed about the possible side effects of vaccines, physicians firmly believe that the benefits far outweigh any risks. vaccines have eliminated polio, and all but wiped out measles, mumps and rubella. i think the reason why we're not seeing a lot of those illnesses is just because of that. not because we're necessarily a healthier population, but because we've taken steps to try and eradicate those diseases that we could eradicate. we have a tremendous number of vaccines we didn't have even when i started practicing, for instance, the h-flu vaccine which came out in the late 80s and we started giving it before the age of
. whatever they do, the marsh creates an incredible environment for them and it's really important that we stick to the hours for them otherwise there won't be a place for these kids to work and learn what they are doing and have an impact as a city. we are talking about affordable living and the city being livable, but without places like the marsh which we have been losing right and left, the city is not livable and when we talk about housing, we are talking about housing for working people because i understand the two, he didn't want to do the low income units. this is luxury. i hope you stick to what it's. if not, i will come back. i know we are on public access tv and i know that adds on 20 pounds. >> yes it does. i'm gene gore. this is my fourth time here and i also agree with all of the stipulations that you also so graciously and correctly passed unanimously and i don't understand why the opposition, the developers keep coming back and back and back. and also i'm very much in favor of having the construction down. i performed at the marsh. i know that i can't imagine performing wit
. if they have a clean environment and able to manipulate with their fingers. it's encouraged these days to do peritoneal dialysis. the next slide shows that peritoneal can be done at night. basically what you have is this patient is sleeping and has a tube coming out of his abdomen and he has a machine which is a large bag on that with fluid that goes into the abdominal cavity and the fluid goes out. this is basically a timer. a very sophisticated and accurate timing device that puts fluid in and out and then the tube the fluid goes out and flesh -- fresh fluid goes in. there is a substantial amount of patients who like peritoneal dialysis who have over night dialysis of this type which is where they don't have to do exchanges during the day. so, the last item that we talked about i have already mentioned most of what's on this slide. no dialysis can be an appropriate choice for particular patients. the kind of patients as i mentioned before would be a patient who has a very bad metastatic cancer and they have a short time left to live but meanwhile their kidneys have given out and many of t

as less than important. the current command environment makes it hard to keep outside influences away from all criminal cases in a command regardless of the commander's view or the unit's view of them as commanders. removing all judicial punishment decisions from the command will keep them clear of all repercussions, including to their command, their career, and their general morale of the unit. loafing judicial punishment with commanders is not just a problem in the mishandling of sexual assault cases with the victim blaming. i have experienced, as well as others, a command environment is simply not a top -- not a top-down environment. my new -- a new commander may take command in an established structure, and the disruption of the structure regardless of how honorable their intentions can lead challenges to that command. this removal of the judicial punishments from the command would remove conflicts both to and from the commanders. this also prevents a commander from lessening the charges to whatever keeps it in the command, or at its lowest levels, either out of concern that the accuse
